Mike and Jill did a great job on this one. Pretty close to my version: 2 oz. vodka, 1 oz. Rose's Lime Juice, 1 oz. Cointreau (instead of Triple Sec, more expensive, but much smoother), and the juice from 1/2 a lime. Definitely shaken and strained though. An interesting variant is to replace the Cointreau/Triple Sec with Blue Curacao for an electric blue looking drink that tastes nearly the same. A classic cocktail with a bad reputation (identical recipe to a classic Margarita with vodka instead of tequila). Don't let sour mix get anywhere near this one!
It's kind of girly, but easy to handle as a shot.
This is a very pleasing and delightful drink. My girlfriend loves this drink the most. But most of all it's not one that requires a lot of practice.
